Angry Chinq 899cc (1998) Stuck in 4th Gear

Seems to be stuck in 4th Gear, Will not Start unless you put the Clutch to the floor, and then as you release the clutch the car starts off in 4th Gear and the gearstick will not shift an inch !

Pulled the shroud off from around gearstick but all seems to be ok, 2 rods all connected fine but just no movement.

Dont think this is Clutch related.........!

Advise would be really aprreciated !

(Car has only covered 24000 miles since new in 1998 !!!!!) it is immaculate and it seems a shame to scrap the little fighter !

does it shift with the engine off? im guessing not, i suspect its not a clutch problem as you dont need a clutch to shift with the engine off (unless ur on a hill i suppose)

It Doesn't shift with the engine off either !

Tried driving it around the block earlier and it wont budge even whilst in motion !
